The hottest ticket in town: Conan’s final “Tonight Show”

Conanfinaltonightshow
 At least a hundred dedicated Conan O’Brien fans braved the cold and the rain early this morning to try and grab a standby seat for Friday night’s “Tonight Show” finale. According to NBC, some camped out all night — during one of the wettest and chilliest nights of the year.

In exchange, O’Brien and company were promising a big blow out tonight to mark the final edition of his “Tonight Show.”

Tom Hanks will be there, while Will Ferrell — O’Brien’s first guest last June — will now be his last guest as well. Neil Young is also on tap to perform.

“Holy crap, have we got an amazing blow out ending planned,” official “Tonight Show” blogger Aaron Bleyaert wrote on his Twitter account.

O’Brien will also likely go out with a bang, ratings-wise. “Tonight” has shot through the roof ever since the late night crisis erupted more than two weeks ago. Thursday’s show was another blockbuster, posting a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49 in the 25 local meter markets. CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman” didn’t even come close (0.9).

Come back to On The Air later this evening for Conan’s monologue, as well as a recap of the “Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” finale.
